Pregame Notes 27 September 2007

Sit back, relax, enjoy the night.

Seriously now, there is absolutely no reason to worry even a little bit about tonight's game--we're in the playoffs, and while finishing out the season on a win streak would be sweet, it's far more important to get the regular guys some rest.

That being said, don't be surprised if tonight's line up completely boggles your mind...I'm personally hoping to see Sardinha and the (former) Attorney General get some ABs, or to see Shelley catch. Or pitch. Or something.

Phil's on tonight, with luck maybe we'll see the first-inning jitters go bye bye and the rest of the game go not like it did Saturday when we had to use every reliever in the known universe. Though, again, rest here is key, so maybe Torre will pull Phil after only five or six so that the gets some rest and some of the younger guys like Matt DeSalvo and Chase Wright can get some work.

I don't know about you, but right now it feels so much better than it did last year, because we clinched by winning, and not by Detroit losing.

We've done this on our own.

Oh, and that 48-24 second half record?

In 1998, we went 54-28.

48-24 = 0.667 winning percentage.
54-28 = 0.659

Unless I can't do math (which, unfortunately, is a distinct possibility), we've just knocked the socks off of 1998.

I wonder if anyone's realized that?


  1. 48-24 = 0.667
    54-28 = 0.659

    Not bad in any case

  2. Thank you, I'll edit it--my math skills leave much to be desired!

  3. It's alright. Maths overrated anyway.
